Following his nomination by President Buhari to serve at the next Federal Executive Council, former governor of Akwa Ibom Godswill Akpabio, has boosted he will deliver ” uncommon services” to the nation when he becomes a minister.
Akpabio, who appeared at the red chamber on Wednesday for screening, was asked to take a bow as the tradition for former legislators at the senate.
According to the former legislator, his uncommon feats as a former governor of Akwa ibom State speaks volume. Akpabio said some of the roads he built as governor of Akwa Ibom have not had potholes 11 years after they were built.
“I will continue to offer uncommon services to Nigeria through the current platform; with integrity, dedication and love. I left office many years ago and on the roads I did, there is not one pothole 11 years after. I rest my case on the CV before you,” he said.
“It is my firm belief that the only way we can touch the lives of the average man in he society is through his hallowed chambers. Nothing really to say than what you already know; I am regarded as uncommon performer in any place I go.”
The former senators are Godswill Akpabio, Gbemisola Saraki, Hadi Sirika, George Akume, Olorunnimbe Mamora, Chris Ngige and Tayo Alasoadura, and Emeka Nwajuiba, a serving Reps member.
Akume and Akpabio had already enjoyed the ‘take a bow’ privilege as they had been screened as at when this report was filed.
